France

Famous quotes containing the word france:

    The good critic is he who relates the adventures of his soul among masterpieces.
    —Anatole France (1844–1924)

    France has lost a battle. But France has not lost the war!
    Charles De Gaulle (1890–1970)

    It is not enough that France should be regarded as a country which enjoys the remains of a freedom acquired long ago. If she is still to count in the world—and if she does not intend to, she may as well perish—she must be seen by her own citizens and by all men as an ever-flowing source of liberty. There must not be a single genuine lover of freedom in the whole world who can have a valid reason for hating France.
    Simone Weil (1909–1943)
